If you register you may get some info. via PM ( private message ).
The information is buried on another thread, even I could not find it,
and I recall discussing numbers with Bewildered.
Reading about 400 last year for the 112 day places, but bear in mind the ten mile catchment. Kendrick even more competitive about 600 for 93 places.. The figures are published in the Guide to Moving to Secondary School on Reading Borough Council website from about September.
The numbers have varied in recent years. You asked, on another thread, for fist hand experience of Crosfields, they are very good at supporting pupils in Reading entrance exams. It is good to start planning early but concentrate on lots of reading, you can not expand a childs vocab. in the months before the exam.
The lessons I learnt last year with son one I am now applying to son two and daughter three.
